Union members across the country wear red shirts on Wednesday to show solidarity and to make their voices heard by management in a small way. The practice was started by the Communication Workers of America who wear red on Thursdays in order to honor Gerry Hogan, a member who was killed while on the picket line. The practice has taken on even more significance with recent attacks on workers' rights by legislatures across the country.

Detroit - UAW International President Rory L. Gamble has received lifetime achievement awards from the Detroit Chapter NAACP and the Western Wayne County NAACP this month honoring his and UAW’s commitment to the fight for social justice.
